problem #2

  • 40 miles
The contact owns a 2016 Honda Civic. While driving 70 mph, the vehicle became difficult to steer and voluntarily drifted into the other lanes. The contact had to use force to steer the vehicle. The lane departure and steering required warning indicators illuminated. The dealer was unable to locate a failure. The failure recurred. In addition, there was a three second delay for the acceleration and ABS. After the delay, the vehicle surged with power and accelerated at a rapid speed. The vehicle was taken back to the dealer, but was not diagnosed. The failure mileage was 40.

  • miles
When the adaptive cruise control (acc) and the vehicle lane keeping assist system (lkas) are engaged simultaneously, the vehicle will react unpredictably under certain conditions. The vehicle may brake suddenly, rapidly decelerate, and quickly depart the highway when approaching exit ramps. The situation occurs during daylight and nighttime hours with clean cameras and radar window. Driver response time is too slow to counteract the event. The vehicle may slow by 10-15 mph and depart the highway before the driver is able to resume control. During 300 miles of highway driving, the vehicle did this twice. A rear end collision was narrowly avoided in one case.
